Connect with your HBCU alumni office

For almost two centuries, since the founding of Cheyney University of Pennsylvania in 1837, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s), have been educating students who go on to be successful alumni.  HBCU alumni are successful career professionals who are fully integrated into America’s diverse workforce.

As an example, in 2013 the top feeder schools for African Americans into Medical schools were colleges with the HBCU designation.  So, if you are one of the numerous college graduates in the HBCU community, who owe your career and professional success to someone on those college campuses, maybe you can consider giving back to your campus.

There are many ways to give back, especially through your campus career center.  For example, as an alumni you can share internships, job shadow opportunities or career positions with your campus.  You can volunteer to participate on employment panels, advisory boards or even do mock interviews in the career center.  Of course you can donate your time to mentor students or advise campus clubs and you can most definitely donate funds to support scholarship programs.

Here is the list of HBCU alumni offices.  Find your alma mater and think about how you can help.
